BASE Enterprise Ltd, in collaboration with Fingal County Council Community and the Institute of Technology Blanchardstown (ITB) Civic Engagement function, have established a new Fingal Community Enterprise Hub in the BASE Enterprise Centre in Mulhuddart.
The main aims of the Hub:
Enhancing engagement with the local community in Dublin 15. Developing social inclusion through enterprise and entrepreneurship. Act as a support hub in the administration of a variety of potential community based programmes, projects andinitiatives focussed on employment, enterprise and ethnic integration.
Entrepreneurship is not only about the creation of a new venture but also about a mind-set, a way thinking and doing that is beyond simply managing business. Therefore, if people understood that entrepreneurship was a way of thinking and of doing, and that it was about behaviour that incorporated opportunity recognition, gathering resources, and building a team, then perhaps more people would believe that they were capable of entrepreneurial activity. This can only come about if there were enterprise development support dedicated to the Dublin 15 community.
